NORTH ADAMS, Mass. (AP) - Police say a 53-year-old woman has been struck and killed by an SUV while walking across a North Adams street.

Karen Shields died Thursday at a Springfield hospital after getting struck late Wednesday night while crossing West Main Street near her home.

Sgt. James Burdick tells the North Adams Transcript she was not in a crosswalk when she was struck.

The SUV's driver, identified as 57-year-old Ronald Fredette, of Pownal, Vt., was taken to the hospital for chest pains.

Police say the death remains under investigation but Fredette is not likely to face charges.
